Summary

The Latin American (Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Peru) prepaid card industry, including both open and closed-loop prepaid cards, registered strong growth during the review period, posting a combined CAGR of 30.04%. It is estimated that 75 million of the Brazilian population are unbanked, or do not have access to banking services. Prepaid cards provide an alternative payment platform to unbanked consumers and help increase levels of financial inclusion. The Mexican prepaid cards market has slowly gained in popularity as organized retailers and vendors began to accept prepaid cards without charging a processing fee. Furthermore, vehicle rental vendors are also using prepaid cards for their service transactions. During the review period, 47% of Chilean retailers enrolled in a gift card program, making the country the second-largest Latin American market after Mexico for prepaid cards. Chilean gift card brands include Falabella, Easy and Paris. More than 50% of the Peruvian population is still unbanked. In order to provide wider levels of financial inclusion, banks in Peru are expected to issue prepaid or debit cards rather than credit cards. The ease of obtaining prepaid cards will drive the market over the forecast period.

Additionally around 247 million private-label cards are in circulation. As Brazilian consumers are already familiar with the concept of payment cards, it is easier for companies to promote prepaid cards.
  • Retailers and supermarkets have launched their own prepaid cards in partnership with commercial banks or prepaid card solution companies. Retailers offering gift cards include iTunes, Cinemex, Mixup, Gandhi, Lo Mejor de México, Smartbox, Starbucks, California Pizza Kitchen, Chili’s, Experimenta, Bueno, todito Card, Saludo, Hablando Derecho, 10 en Tareas and Xbox Live.
  • There are opportunities in the Chilean prepaid card market to introduce open-loop cards which have distinctive benefits for both retailers and customers alike. The open loop cards expand the usability of the card and do not restrict the user to shop from limited retailers.
  • The online retailing market in Peru is projected to record a CAGR of 13.48% over the forecast period. While debit and credit cards can be used for online purchases, prepaid cards are expected to be used for online retail purchases due to the security options they provide.
